Before I start with today’s meme, I wanted to talk about the picture. Today’s image has nothing to do with the meme itself, but I just wanted to show off my new materials-ready cyber gauntlets that Sion Pearl sent me. Aren’t they totally sexy? I had to go all out and make a sexy cybergirl with mesh corsets and all. If you’re using a materials-ready viewer then you’ve got to pick up a demo and try these babies out!
Now on to the meme, last week I asked you guys to get really creative so I thought this week I would keep it simple and easy. I’ve already asked a bunch of questions about your SLife, avatar, names, etc… so I figured now was a good time to bust out all the weird questions that I’m always wondering about but I’m normally too shy to ask. So here we go…
Monday Meme Instructions: Copy and paste the following questions and answers into your blog post, delete my answers and input your own. Remember to leave your link in this meme’s comments so we can all come by, read your answers and secretly judge you.
Which was the last sim you visited? (Other than your home)SL10B
Does your avatar look like the real you? Well not in today’s picture she doesn’t! :P
Do you wear underwear/panties underneath your clothing when out and about on the grid? No, the only time I wear lingerie of any kind is if I’m wearing it for a photoshoot, or if I’m trying to seduce someone…which has never ever happened before because I am an innocent angel. *coughs*
If you won a million linden dollars, what would be the first thing you buy inworld? Hmmmm, not sure tbh. I usually just buy whatever I really want right away (cuz I am an addict). I might get a sim and actually buy a house and furnish it. But I have a feeling I would get bored and drop the project in the middle. I am so boring. :-/
Have you ever bought something in SL and then realized afterwards that you had already owned it from before? Yeah actually that happens to me quite often. One time I went to this awesome pose store and bought a whole bunch of poses and props then totally forgot that I had done that and a month later I went back to the same pose shop and bought almost the whole store again and then went home and realized that I had doubles of it all now. This is my SLife.
Have you ever done anything in Second Life that would be considered illegal in real life? No, I am totally virginal and angelic! OK FINE! I may or may not have broken into someone’s home and took pictures sitting all over their furniture, not telling whose or where or when or anything else though! :P
If you could go out on a date with any other avatar, who would it be?Bouncer Criss
Who, in your opinion, was the greatest avatar to ever slive? Swirly Cyclone
What is the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done inworld? Hmmmmm, there are so many things…where do I begin. I remember one time I was with someone that I had a major crush on, but we were just friends and he was showing me a new sim and I accidentally removed my top and then I was lagging so it took me forever to put my top back ON and this whole time he was laughing and snapping pictures. Yeah, this embarrassing stuff just comes naturally to me.
If your avatar had a mind of its own, what do you think it would say to you? “Strawberry? Really? You couldn’t think of anything better?”
Please remember that you can participate in any of the memes/challenges at any time. You’ll find them all under my Blog Challenges category along with other memes and challenges I’ve done over the years. I hope you’re having a fantastic Monday! <3
I felt like doing a pretty pic today. I feel like I haven’t done one of these for a while. I don’t often wear a lot of makeup, in RL or SL but once in a while I do like to get all dolled up and elymode knows how to do glitter! Of course I couldn’t resist the new mesh liners from Glam Affair either, totally delicious. All of this and more at Cosmetics Fair right now, so take the slurl and check it out.
I had a lot of fun with this in photoshop so make sure to click over to my profile to see the raw shot. Do you guys ever do before and after comparisons? I do that a lot after I process just to see how much I put into it. Sometimes I kind of regret all the processing and wonder if it’s better if I kept it at a minimum but then I guess I wouldn’t learn as much. Sometimes it’s fun to just press that shiny button and see what it can do!
Finally, one thing I wanted to mention that I noticed the other day. All of the major social networks I’m on seem to have adopted hashtags. So now I’m stalking all the SecondLifers everywhere. I think it’ll be interesting to see how this develops and how people use it on the other networks. I know I use hashtags like crazy on Twitter, I follow the SecondLife hashtags and certain other social media tags and such. I’ve learned a lot that way and have been introduced to many bloggers and informative sites. Here’s a link to the #SecondLife hashtags on different networks, in case you wanna stalk them with me:
Yesterday I did a tutorial showing how you can move and position an avatar on a sim where you don’t have rez rights. The link to that is here: Moving Avatars. After I did that post, a few people on different social networks shared how you can move and position yourself on a sim where you can’t rez. I am attaching both videos in this post to make it easier and I’ll also give the instructions below that.
This post is going to be less about my butt and more about a random few things that I needed to discuss so I am taking a break from studying (shhhh don’t tell anyone) just so I can share all this info and then I will probably not be around for the next few days.
All of the pictures in this post are raw shots, just cropped.
I also wanted to let everyone know that is working on a movie poster that there is also a Hair Fair contest of a similar theme going on at the same time. Unfortunately, I’ve had my head in my books recently so I didn’t know about it or I would have tried to incorporate that in my original picture/post but I checked out the details and it runs till June 28th so I will work on a picture for that next week then. You can click over to the Hair Fair Contest flickr group for all the details and join it and perhaps kill two birds with one stone if you were planning to do the challenge. Don’t forget to read the rules of the contest carefully!
And finally, while we’re on the topic of hair, I wanted to share this hairstyle. Damselfly is a hair place that’s been around in SL for a long time, however I never really blogged anything from there before (as far as I can remember) because I didn’t feel the textures and styles really suited me. However, the creator recently sent me a folder of items and said she has changed and updated her textures. I checked them out and I really like this hair, I thought the style and the textures were well done so I wanted to share it with you guys. You can check out the Damselfly blog for all the details.
Before I start talking about today’s Monday Meme I just wanted to address something. Every week I have someone messaging me saying that what I’m doing every Monday on my blog is not a meme, it’s a blog challenge. I absolutely understand that these are not “typical” internet memes, especially the ones I’ve been doing lately. I admit, I did start with typical BLOG memes that consist of a series of questions that people can answer, but now it has evolved into poetry and other challenges. I don’t mind that because it’s something different and refreshing to see and read. So from now on, to make those that are annoyed with the fact that I keep calling them memes, lol, I will change it up and sometimes write meme, or challenge or nothing at all. I do however like the idea of calling these “My Monday Memes” because it has a nice ring to it and keeps me disciplined about doing them every Monday.
Anyhow, now that we have gotten the explanation out of the way, let me go on to the challenge for this week. This is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time, but I was afraid it might be frowned upon for copyright reasons or something. However, I’ve spoken to a few people about it and since I’m just inspired by the movie poster and not actually copying anything directly from it (I’ve used my own images, logos, wording and even changed the fonts) and also since I am not “selling” anything, it should be ok. My SL movie poster is of course inspired by “There’s Something about Mary” one of my favorite movies!
Monday Meme Instructions: The challenge for this week is to create a movie poster for your SL Avatar or SLife. You can base it off an original movie poster or think of a completely new idea of your own! Get creative and have some fun with it! Remember to leave your link in this meme’s comments so others can come by and see your poster as well.
A big thank you to Rogan Diesel of Diesel Works for making this custom pose for me. It is really hard to get the avatar to bend like this without a lot of distortion and I also had to adjust my shape quite a bit. I had to make my legs really small and put my arms at 100 to reach my knees, lol! I definitely won’t be wearing this adjusted shape anywhere. Check out Diesel Works for more awesome poses and props! Thanks Rogan! <3
So that's the challenge for today. I hope you guys participate, I think it'll be a riot to see everyone's posters! Please remember that you can participate in any of the memes/challenges at any time. You’ll find them all under my Blog Challenges category along with other memes and challenges I’ve done over the years. If you put your poster on flickr, feel free to share it in the Blog Memes Flickr Group.
